I just received my iPad today and have been unable to connect to any wireless network. I've tried with three different networks, all without success. Each time, it accepts the passcode for the network and the wifi icon shows up. If I try to open a page in Safari, I get an error saying that I'm not connected to the Internet. When I look at the settings for the network, I see a self-assigned IP address (169.254.xxx.xx) - for someone reason, the iPad is unable to get a valid IP address on any network.
I've already verified that all of the passcodes I'm using are correct and I've tried resetting network settings to factory defaults. Since this is a wifi-only version, this renders the iPad completely useless. I'm pretty frustrated and wondering if anyone else has experienced this and/or fixed it. I'd really hate to return it (since I ordered it via mail), but right now the iPad is nothing more than an expensive paperweight.
thats a re route or something. On mine I had to change the max number of dhcp addresses to 150 and set the channel to 11. save settings and then unplug router. this is important, when you power up the router will reassign ip addresses. try it.
I'm having similar problems. One silly work around I have found...after connecting to the router, turn the iPad off and then on again. When it starts back up, it may find the network and work. No telling if it will hold it for long but it's worth a try.
